One of the best tours we've ever done! Our guides Jason and Roy were awesome, fun, nice, enthusiastic and safe! We rappelled down waterfalls, jumped into pools, walked through the creek, and a short zip line. I was nervous at first but the guys do a great job of helping you. We ended with a walk/swim in the beautiful and... More

Awesome! Our 8 year old enjoyed every minute and we felt very safe with the staff. Our 13 year old did the trip with one hand in a cast and there was no problem. HIGHLY recommended. The tour includes rappelling down waterfalls. A short zip line through the forest. A couple of small jumps into pools of water. Great scenery... More

Julio picked us up from the airport in San Jose and transported us to our hotel in La Fortuna and he was awesome. He was engaging and genuinely a freindly guy. He also took us to some hot springs a few days later and was a joy.

We went on a late afternoon hike with Marcos and Carlos. They were excellent guides and have a lot of passion for nature. We saw some very interesting things including a sloth with her baby, toucans, a coral snake and more. The hike itself is pretty light but it was a good excursion.

Upon recommendation from our hotel, we went on a canyoning tour with Glisman(sp?- sorry!) from Sunset Tours. He made the day for all of us! He and his team made it seem as though they enjoyed working together and as a result made it fun for us. This is despite the fact that it rained so heavily that we ended... More

Loved all of our tour guides! We had personal transfers with Minor who was wonderful and then went waterfall repelling which was incredible. The waterfalls and rain-forest was beautiful! We loved the waterfall repelling. Highly recommend this your group!

Beautiful forest and nice vegetation. Last bit when you near the outlook was difficult for some people to do. Shakey sharp rocks and quite steep, though the rest of the 2 hr hike was nice and flat. Guide Marlon was superb- smart and kind.

Absolutely Amazing Experience! Our family of 4 ('kids' age 23 and 17) set upon our eco-adventure in Costa Rica with this one-of-a-kind exerience in the shadow of Arenal Lake. Our young guides were fantastic, knowledgeable and fun! As it was low-season, we had the added benefit of a PRIVATE tour for our family which made this an even more enjoyable... More

If you've never been canyoneering, you have to try it! Repelling, ziplining, trekking through waist high rushing water. So much fun. Jason and our other guides were awesome. Super friendly and knowledgeable of the area and they were having as much fun with it as we were. After the 3-4 tour we were treated back at the base with fresh... More

Felipe Chancon, with Get to Costa Rica, was highly recommended to us by friends. He couldn't have been more wonderful. He was our guide, and by the end of our 12 day trip, felt like one of the family. He met us at the airport and stayed with us everywhere. He booked us with fantastic "moderate" lodging and tours of... More
